Default A Few more pics:

Just a couple more pics of her:




Notice the front wheel in this pic! hub cap came off while on the M62 over Saddleworth Moor... Discovered gap over the hub (to keep the grease in!) didn't exist, so grease went every where....

The grease, which I thought was causing issues with braking (pulling to the left) wasn't!!!
Basically, whoever put on new calipers, on the right didn't bother to replace the disk or the pads as both are shot and very dangerous (took the family out on a 150 mile round trip!!!)

Sent an e-mail to the bloke I bought it off, and he replied saying that he was unaware of this, but has offered to cover the cost of the replacement parts etc.............. What can I say?

I will gladly take up his offer and see if he keeps his end of the bargin!!

No probs taking screen out, but be prepared for the horror of the flaky front panel. Wait until you have the time, money and patience to do it right. Also if fornt screen is leaking, watch out for your fusebox. It's normally on the left hand side up behing the glove box.

Thanks for the reply!
I will try to tackle this after xmas (due to lack of funds and time) as I have been instructed by the 'better half' that the van must be ready by the 6 week holidays!

Plus I finally got a JK van cover, so hopefully this will slow down any possible rotting process!

Got a cross over myself, but I wish it was in this condition! It's gorgeous! Love the red & white as well.
